Call us nerds, but we’re big fans of retro computer games around here. So it’s no surprise that we fell in love with Pixel Replay.com, a new website set up to re-create classic goals as though they happened in Sensible Soccer.
The men behind the magic have specially designed three of Ireland’s most famous goals for us. There’s Liam Brady showing the Brazilians how to play in 1987:

Ray Houghton’s winner against Italy at the USA 1994 World Cup, complete with Pagliuca in no man’s land:

And Robbie Keane’s last-gasp equaliser against Germany in Ibaraki in 2002. Quinny’s header still looks every bit as good:
